We are almost concerned that tuning companies have to look to older models to create new tuning packages recently. A few days ago we wrote about the new tuning package for the old 2007 Mercedes E-Class W211 by Prior Design. Today, we bring you a new tuning package for the Audi A3 8P for model years up to 2008 by JMS. Are tuning companies getting bored? The Audi A3 8P debuted in 2003 as a 3-door hatchback and only had to wait about a year for Audi to release it as a 5-door sportback. In 2008, Audi released the A3 8P as a cabriolet. Now, in 2010, JMS has decided to give the Audi A3 8P a little of a facelift with its Racelook aerodynamic package with most accessories fitting all of the models.

The new aerodynamic package consists of a new frontlip, side skirts that make the car look lower, and a Racelook rear apron with an optional aluminum grating in black or silver. Rounding off the package is the much needed stainless steel dual rear muffler with round tips. JMS has also provided a 3 piece look roof spoiler. JMS also recommends a KW v1 coil over kit that lowers the vehicle on both axles by up to 50mm for a better driving experience. The car is finished by exclusive Corniche chrome rims in 8X19 with 225/35-19 tires.

Check out the full story after the jump.

The package, albeit a little exaggerated, does add something to the Audi A3 8P. Our assumptions are that we will be seeing a lot of tuning packages for older models such as the Audi A3 8P solely because the tuning companies know what kind of financial situation automakers are in. People just aren’t buying cars like they used to, but they might spend a little money to update their current vehicle and make it feel like a new car. Anyone here order the case of new car scent?

What do you think?

The Audi A3 gets a special JMS Coilover kit that lowers the car 50mm on the front and 40mm on the back.

Am not that amaze with the body kit, it looks common but having those nice shiny wheels that makes the car looks gorgeous.

Lovely hatchback, it’s custom body kits are very rare to see plus they paired the lovely car to a lovely set of rims. But IMO it looks similar to it’s twin brother VW Golf GTI.
